We had an early start for our tour this year. We went to Trabolgan Village Activity Centre. It is a holiday centre with holiday homes and caravans, eating areas and lots of activities for all ages and energies. It’s definitely a great place for families. First we had 90 minutes in the swimming pool, which is a wave pool and has a very big slide. The pupils all really enjoyed themselves. The centre had a number of lifeguards on duty keeping an eye on every one.
Our second activity was Crazy Golf, it was 9 holes and some of the greens were difficult. We played in groups of 4-5 and worked up an appetite for our lunch. We posed for funny photos.
After lunch we walked a long distance over to the Adventure and Sport Section, here we did wall climbing and zip wiring. The wall was massive but very secure, each pupil had the proper climbing gear put on them and safety helmets as well. Each pupil when their turn came, was tied in with ropes so they didn’t fall, these ropes helped them when they were coming back down. They could climb up the wall as high as they were comfortable with. Noreen put it up to Mr Murphy on the wall as they challenged each other to race up it!
Most of the pupils tried the zip wiring. Again it was high up and after the initial start along the wire which is the most terrifying part, the pupils all came back to us with big smiles on their faces. We were delighted that two staff members tried it as well.
Soon after a visit to the shop we went home, we were very tired but with lots of happy memories.
